HOME LINES I Picture Organic Clothing ft. Coline Ballet-Baz and Jackie Paaso

Searching for adventure in your own backyard makes so much sense. Home Lines adjusts to this new paradigm, choosing to embark on a low-impact expedition close to home. No moralizing or judgment implied, just a simple proposition, a yearning, an experience.

FROM SOURCE I Yann Rausis ft. Yann Rausis

A skier wanders alone by a glacier on a bright full-moon night and steps into the abyss of a glacier cave. His longing for spiritual liberation guided him there, as far as possible from everything he knows. Diving in the depths of the unknown, he experiences a mystical connection with his higher self through his freeride skiing visions. The next day feels like seeing the world with different eyes as he comes back to civilization with a fresh and rejuvenated spirit, dreaming about dancing freely on the spring mountain playground. 

 

THE X-PROJECT 2.0 ft. Cody Bramwell

The movie is also about heading out the Swiss backcountry with free-riders like Cody! The X-project 2.0 is unique in the world and embodies a combination of different sports in a breathtaking snowy landscape in the Engadine mountains in Switzerland. Windsurfing in powder snow together with speed riding, snowboarding, wingsuit, backcountry freestyle, and snowkiting.

It will be premiered on the 3rd of Dec at the Verkahrshaus in Luzern on the biggest IMAX cinema screen in Switzerland.

 

 

THE ARCTIC 12 I Kollektive Productions ft. Reine Barkered and Jackie Paaso

In April 2021 a team composed of two couples, a pair of professional big mountain skiers, and two IFMGA guides set out on a 415km traverse above the Arctic Circle. The goal was to summit and ski all of the 2000 meter peaks in Sweden. This is an area where the tallest peaks are changing due to melting glaciers and new 2000 meters peaks are being discovered as recently as 2016. The journey will take them through what is often considered Europe's last wilderness. The team will face the unpredictable weather of the Arctic, abnormally unstable avalanche conditions, and perhaps the biggest challenge, each other. If successful they could be the first crew to do so in one go during winter conditions.

The film will be presented at the Festival iF3, GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!

 

NA VITA DE NËI I TROUBLEHAUS ft. Arianna Tricomi

We are celebrating the highs and lows of the pandemic winter season 2021 with a last dance on our gliding surface of choice.. looking back and reflecting about a life spent in snow where now time and life seemed to be stopped..... Honoring our cold friend with a melancholy, poetic yet beautiful salute.

''This is my life. A snow life. This winter was a special one, for everybody around this planet. I’ve been struggling to keep up the love and passion for skiing, more then in previous years... I thought it was maybe something that only happened to me but then discovered that this feeling was shared by many more.. it was interesting to share thoughts and emotions especially on the Freeride World Tour with people from all around the world. I started thinking and had so many ideas and images in my head... I wanted to bring them alive and wanted to find the full JOY again skiing.... I found the joy again. It’s simply SKIING.''

- Arianna Tricomi about Na Vita de Nëi on her Instagram account

THE STOMPING GROUNDS I MSP ft. Hedvig Wessel and Logan Pehota

For decades, the pursuit of adventure, deep powder, and massive spines has taken professional skiers to the far reaches of the globe. As skiers, the desire to seek more and to escape is ingrained in our DNA. But that doesn’t mean our immediate surroundings don’t possess their own special treasures. Presented by Toyota, Matchstick Productions brings to you their newest creation, THE STOMPING GROUNDS.

This action-packed feature explores the backyards and zones our pro skiers can frequent every day (sometimes with a little extra effort and ingenuity). From a “born-and-raised” resort in Idaho to the spectacular Lyngen Alps just outside their hometowns in northern Norway, our skiers thrive in what’s familiar and find thrills in the unexpected. In the process, they manage to re-discover what is “home”. And home delivers in spades.

HOME I Lucas Stanus Video ft. Blake Marshall 

It is the story of a young freerider from the Portes du Soleil who sets out to rediscover the ski area where he grew up. He brings with him, locals and friends, because real skiing is shared! It is a polyvalent film between freeride and backcountry.

LONG DAYS I Legs Of Steel ft. Arianna Tricomi

A movie made to create a more ‘real’ experience of what these athletes go through in order to make a ski film. You’re out from dusk till dawn. Some of the days the crew starts ski touring at 1am to ski lines at sunrise and other days the crew stay out till it's dark to shoot sunset sessions.

The film is raw and back to the roots of freeskiing.
